Montgomery Is...

We’re the capital of Alabama. Our 200,000+ citizens enjoy mild winters, more than 70 city parks and living near some of the most historical sites in the U.S.  Our diverse economy, great real estate values and other amenities make the Capital of Dreams a great place to live.


Let the Games Begin

Montgomery is home to the Raycom Media Camellia Bowl, the Blue Gray Tennis Tournament, the Turkey Day Classic, annual Marathon and Half-Marathon and top-notch collegiate and scholastic competitive events. Firefighters, golfers, horseshoe pitchers, anglers and athletes from countless sports come here for championship tournaments.  


Butter & Blue Baseball

The Biscuits, Montgomery’s AA minor league baseball team, is an affiliate of the Tampa Bay Rays.  Riverwalk Stadium is ranked among the best venues in all of sports.  If you’re lucky, you’ll catch a cannon-propelled biscuit or get a hug from Big Mo!


Into the Wild Blue Yonder

Maxwell Air Force Base and the Gunter Annex are the center for officer training and the Information/Technology hub, respectively for the Air Force. Air University hosts military personnel from around the globe and our aviation roots go back to the Wright Brothers who opened the world’s first civilian flight school here. We’re frequently called the best hometown in the Air Force!

Birthplace of the Civil Rights Movement

1955’S Montgomery Bus Boycott gave birth to the Civil Rights Movement.  Heroes like Dr. Martin Luther King, Rosa Parks and the citizens of Montgomery made the dream of racial equality a reality for our nation.


Graze on Goat Hill

Known wide and far across the Yellowhammer State as Goat Hill, Alabama’s capitol complex is now home to an entirely different type of animal. Goat Hill derived its nickname from the goats that once grazed upon the property. Today, it sits near the heart of the city and at the epicenter of state politics -- a far cry from the peaceful pasture city founder Andrew Dexter sold to the state in the 19th Century.

Rediscovering the River & Revitalizing Downtown

Visitors and residents alike can explore the Alabama River thanks to a vibrant riverfront entertainment district complete with restaurants, trails, historic markers, shops and an amphitheater. 


Hank's Here! Travel the Lost Highway

The Lost Highway begins and ends in Montgomery. The Alabama Troubadour’s meteoric rise to fame started right here, but it was also the setting for his final show – a funeral attended by more than 20,000 mourners at City Hall. Hank now rests in Montgomery’s Oakwood Annex Cemetery, where fans and friends gather each New Year's Day to toast the country icon with a shot of whiskey and a song. Visitors can also explore the Hank Williams Museum, located in downtown Montgomery, and home to many of the singer’s relics. 


Top Notch Education

Montgomery Public Schools’ magnet program consistently earns national recognition.  LAMP High School, Booker T. Washington High School and Forest Avenue Elementary are ranked among the top 10 schools in Alabama. Montgomery is also home to eight colleges and universities.
